The class decided it might be fun to build rocket ships out of the boxes and worked together to build-up the rocketships as well as cu out holes so they could get inside the rockets! Then, the class painted extra shipping paper to create fiery rocket exhausted and painted the rocket itself fun and exciting colors. You can do this with your young children and students as well!
